This item was mostly about having a more relaxed attitude towards life. I am one of those people that really enjoys organizing, scheduling, and planning my life. Since taking on my 30 before 30 project, I focused on being more spontaneous!
I wanted to write about one of the most spontaneous moments that I experienced while doing this project. Tracy and I with several family friends attended a showing of the theater production of the “25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” in Morgan Hill, CA. The play is based off of a children’s spelling bee and requires some audience participation. Before the play Tracy and I were approached by the producer of the play asking if we were interested in being one of the stand in spelling bee contestants. I HATE SPELLING!!! So instantly I turned bright red at the idea of spelling in front of a live audience. Tracy and our family friends ended up talking me into it and it turnout to be a really cool experience. During the play I was called up to the stage and had to spell in front of the crowd. They first gave me an easy word (“cow”) and then they gave me a made up word (they wanted the stand in to mess up). After misspelling the word they sang me off stage and was given a juice box. It was definitely something that was out of my comfort zone but it was pretty neat to be involved with the play.
